In Latvia called the myth of information on the transfer Donbass “white tights”

The Ministry of defence commented on the statement of the authorities of the self-proclaimed Luhansk national Republic (LNR) for the transfer to the contact line of female snipers from the Baltic States and Poland, calling it a myth. On Monday, April 10, reports Delfi.

“Striking lack of imagination from the creators of propaganda, trying again to pull the light the old myth of female snipers from Baltic countries (the so-called white stockings — approx. “Of the”),” — said the Ministry of defence of the Republic. The Department also noted that the desire to demonize soldiers of Latvia and other NATO countries is a classic information operation “to capture the minds and hearts of people.”

April 9, the official representative of the LPR militia Lieutenant Colonel Andrey Marochko reported that, according to intelligence sources, to the line of contact deployed fighting on the side of the Ukrainian security forces female snipers from the Baltic States and Poland.

On 21 March it was reported that in Donbass there arrived the division of the “Witches”, which is banned in Russia as extremist organization “Right sector”. According to Deputy commander of the operational command of the self-proclaimed Donetsk national Republic (DND) Eduardo Baturina, arrived in Artemovsk a team of female snipers, known for its crimes against the civilian population.

“White tights” — the slang name for the squad of women snipers, mainly Baltic origin, allegedly fought on the side of anti-Russian forces and volunteer troops in the war zones in the territory of the former USSR in the 90-ies of the last century.

The armed conflict in the Donbas began in the spring of 2014 taken by Kiev after attempts at violent suppression of demonstrations in Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
